About Me

My photo
Paonia, CO, United States
I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

The favorite card at the sorority get-away was this...

Do you like the bandana fabric? I think it makes the whole card.
You can't really tell in the photo, but the boot on top is cut out and popped up with mounting foam.

Of course, you make make a variety of similar cards by changing the boots, the sayings, the cardstock or carstock treatment, adding knots to the fabric, all kinds of things...
what would you change?

Punch Storage in the New Cave

I'm afraid I can't do pictures of the whole studio just yet. I'm still getting settled, picking up, organizing...
But, since I promised a photo or two of the new punch storage my DH made for me and that little corner of the room is pretty well done...

Believe it or not, we used grounding rods and eye screws. The wall is about 6 feet long and then it bends around the corner another 18" or so.

It's all very functional and sturdy. I only have one problem...

there's not a lot of room for growth!
'Course, after 14 or so years of stamping, I'm hoping I won't need too many more supplies. Is anyone else as much of a hoarder as I am?

July 2010

Now that it's the middle of the month....

I thought maybe I should probably post the July calendar. DUH!

Geez! Summer is half over already and I hope you're all soaking up the rays and havin' some fun!
